Thousands comment on Clean Air Zone

With the end of the six-week long public consultation – on proposals to create a Clean Air Zone in Bath in sight – Bath Newseum has been talking to the man who has been very busy listening to what the public have had to say.

Cllr Bob Goodman is B&NES Cabinet member for Development and Neighbourhoods and this proposal – which will see vehicles failing a limit set for vehicle emissions being charged to enter the city centre – is something he is keen to push through.

There are hints also of more measures – supported with government money –  to increase the pedestrianisation of parts of the inner area.


No decisions have yet been made and the consultation is open until 26 November. Find out more online or by attending a drop in event and have your say by completing a consultation questionnaire at  Information is also available at your local B&NES library or One Stop Shop.

  • Sat 24 November, 10am-2pm, Bath & North East Somerset Council, Brunswick Room, Guildhall, High Street, Bath, BA1 5AW
